    Yes, in the past 12 months (explain type(s) of training)

    Yes April 12th and will go again in September. Professional training. I do this two to three times a year, and have done so for the last 5 years.

    I took the re up course for a Texas CHP a few months back.

    I got my original training privately from an ex-Army Ranger. It was free because I was going to work for him. Hand to hand, knife, handgun, shotgun, and submachine gun. No rifle training. I don't shoot rifles.

    and, yea, you CAN vote in more than one category.
    After many years of consideration, I must regretfully conclude that diversity is our enemy.

    I was Military Intelligence and qualified annually with a .45 which was my standard issue sidearm. When I got my carry permit, I took a couple of more courses. Now, I go to the range as often as I can.

    I did a weekend course in California in the late 1990s...then attended a couple of courses (1-2 weeks each) with the USMC's Weapons Training Battalion and did another driving/shooting course with ITI in West Point, Virginia...

    Would love to take another course, but will probably need to be .mil sponsored being in Germany...

    I've tried to take a multi-day course every 18-24 months. My last was a two-day point shooting course...1400 rounds in two days, we WERE very busy.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    Miltary training in the navy, had the oppertunity to take a week long class called fpft. Force protection fundamendal training or soming like that, it was force on force with airsoft M9's to simulate working as a team to clear a vessel (submarine in my case) of terrorists. Training was a blast but we where technicians not full time weapon carriers. I had been shooting for years and years though and i was one of very few guys to score perfect on the pistol qual several times (sometimes the only one) on the USS Miami. We qualified yearly with the m9, m 16, shotgun, and a couple of times i qualified with the mk 46. I was a nuke (nuclear reactor operator/nuclear electronics technician) and was not required to qualify the mk 46 but the ships armorer threw me a bone because he knew i was a gun dork. The mk 46 is a shortened m 249 saw firing beltfed 5.56.

    Nick....when did you take the course? I took it in either Apr or May of 1997--I second your opinion--it was a GREAT course. I remember they offered to allow graduates to come back and shoot again during another course on an NTI basis...according to the instructors at the time, I was the only one to took them up on it. I showed up to two days--one day was the fam fire for the foreign weapons.

    It was during this course I was introduced to the Benelli M3 Super 90, which I ended up getting a few years later. No one in my class wanted to shoot the shotgun because of the "kick back" LOL.....at the end of the day, they let me burn through a case of 12ga (because they didn't want to turn it in).

    JD--where is he instructing now? The HRPC course (and the Marine instructor who taught it) is what really kick-started my seriousness in concealed carry and change in mindset.

    In the past 12 months: Suarez International's Defensive Pistol Skills, Point Shooting Gunfighting, Close Range Gunfighting. Will be taking SI's Force on Force class in October as well as their Rifle and Shotgun Gunfighting when they are next offered in my area.

    Some time back: Tae Kwon Do, Chun Kuk Do (up until about 7 years ago when degenerative disc disease, arthritis, etc. took me out of that game)

    Lots of military and LE, but I consider myself a novice, as learning skill sets is a never ending process.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.
